City Hall-run waste facility eyed in 130-ha Sto Tomas area
La Trinidad stakeholders last week agreed to hold a workshop on Aug. 29 to flesh out the implementing rules and regulations of the town’s controversial ordinance that sought to regulate the establishment and operation of bars and restaurants serving alcohol.

Baguio Mayor Mauricio Domogan said Wednesday the survey in the 130-hectare city lot at Sto. Tomas Proper is just the start of the process in determining if the site is feasible for an integrated solid waste management system (ISWMS).


The Baguio Water District is currently initiating remedial measures to recover majority of the water volume it used to generate from the springs connected to the Amliang Creek before it was contaminated by excavation activities in a portion of Mount Sto. Tomas reservation at Tuba, Benguet.

The request of John Hay Water System, Inc. (JHWS) to increase the volume of water it extracts within John Hay is legal.
